You probably could if the threads are the same. Aside from military vehicles I have worked on, the Saturn was the first car I worked on with a spin-on trans filter. Most auto parts stores carry the transmission filter for Saturns and they are not that much more than an oil filter.

No power on take off

If your check engine light is on, i would start there.

If not, you can run through the basic TuneUp items, (plugs, wires, cap, rotor, fuel filter, etc). And make sure your oil level is good and not over or under filled.

I have a 1998 Saturn SC2 engine stutter.

Sounds to me like you need to change the transmission fluid the filter is under the air filter box and the drain plug is a 17mm on the bottom of the trans closest to the engine about mid ways between the car warm the car up good then drain the fluid beware the fluid will be hot the filter is like a oil filter it just unscrews fill with proper fluid do not over fill hope this helps you

Saturn SC2 manual transmission modification

Manual transmision gears actually bathe in oil and distrubute the lubrication around the gearbox simply by the gears being connected to each other. In these boxes, the oil is not pumped as it is in automatic transmissions.

Some automatics build up oil pressure to shift gears while others use computer control. Manual trannies do build up pressure slightly because the of the meshing gears and the forcing and displacing of oil between the teeth, but nothing like an automatic.

The fluid in auto transmissions is pumped through the filter like it is in the engine. Since manual transmissions don't have a pressurized oil system, you will need add a suitable pump which will take oil from the lowest point in the tranny case and run it through a filter head (available at any hydraulic supply house) and from the filter output, back into the tranny.

You could position the filter in the engine compartment if you like. It sounds like a lot of work with little benifit. You will still need to drill into the tranny to access the oil and back in to replenish it.

I would recommend placing a magnetic plug on the drain (if there is drain) to catch the worn metal parts. If your really eager, just change the tranny oil more often and clean the metal off the magnetic drain plug.

What is the black box for to the left of the air filter,95 saturn sc2

when you say left do you mean looking at the vechicle from the front? if so then left means passenger side and it would be the relay box on that side if you mean the driver side you may be talking about the ABS brake computer box, but you did not say if it had wires connected to it.
